Grilled Artichokes
  • Artichokes (rinsed and stem trimmed)
  • 1 TBSP butter (per artichoke)
  • 1 clove garlic (crushed) per artichoke
  • BBQ Spice Blend
  • Mayonnaise
  1. Rinse artichokes and trim stem. Cut off a few of the small outer small leaves.
  2. Place artichokes in large pot, covered with salted water. Cover.
  3. Bring pot to boil, then reduce to simmer.
  4. Cook for about 30 minutes or until knife easily inserts into center of artichoke. Time will vary depending on size of artichoke.
  5. When artichokes are just tender, remove from pot, drain, and slightly cool. Cut in half lengthwise and remove the middle section right above the heart.
  6. Melt butter with crushed garlic. I used 2 TBSP and 2 garlic cloves for two large artichokes. Measurements are approx.
  7. Brush butter and garlic liberally onto cut side of artichoke.
  8. Season with BBQ Spice Blend.
  9. Place artichokes, cut side down onto med/high grill.
  10. Grill for 10-15 minutes or until they get golden with a few grill marks.
  11. Enjoy your artichoke with mayo, melted butter, or fresh lemon.
